Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a system to create one shared digital representation of the physical and functional aspects of a building which is then used by the whole project team.
BIM is mandated for all Government funded projects. It can add real value for clients in both the public and private sectors because it can save cost and time, allow more accurate estimation and help to avoid errors and alterations later on.
At G&T we are focused on making sure the adoption of BIM delivers value for clients.
